For about a month, threads I started didn't appear in new posts.
But, maybe three days ago, they did.
I found them in the mean time, natch, by looking at My Topics.
I tried to communicate with mods but did it badly - as in, I wrote back on matters that had been Closed. I should have started new tickets.
During this month I have found what is going on by looking at the right side panel of new posts, the present top best, and by looking at Popular, and even looking at Unanswered, while what has shown up in some hours on new posts has been, er, lame. A few weeks ago, to summarize, I figured I wasn't seeing many of the new posts in New Posts. Criminy.
Meantime, I figured out that I was not getting the language threads. I rarely answer them but am interested and do answer once in a while. All gone...
while my choices on My Preferences are quite open.
I'm not anti mods. Just trying to explain, after I sent a batch of emails to Closed.
I'll also add that I've lost my Italy diary, which is painful. Apparently, the first pages of that thread are gone, and that was my record.
The seeming page one, was not page one.
As it happened, I stupidly tossed the cheapo notebook.
The diary may be on an old corrupted hard drive of mine, or not.
